During the greater part of last week

And Mr. Blackwell said he was stire of j

She . was ?.buried at. Fellowship

years. They have one sister still

who is 86years of age. She is the

three'cogent reasons why you
should use wines in your homes :

wines are the basis of nearly
every tonic preparation in the
world and are unexcelled to
build up the system and quiet
the nerves. (..:

2nd. Because, in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, where
children become accustomed to the moderate use of wines on the
dining table and otheiwise in the household, they never acquire a
taste for heavy intoxicants.
THIS IS FOR TEftPERA/?CE" SA.KE.
3rd. Because, the United States has facilities (climatic ano. in
dustrial) for making more wines than any other nation, and yet
France produces annually 1,100,000,000 gallons to our 26,000,000. This
is an industry which, if fostered, would thrive mightily and give
employment to thousands.
THIS IS FOR PROSPERITY'S SAKE.

danger of confounding them with others. We guarantee our goods
